Hi everyone. Some of you know that I've been really sick for the past 2 weeks - vomiting, high fevers, extreme nausea, new pain, not able to tolerate anything except water, etc.

Well, yesterday I woke up not feeling so great, but as the day went on I started feeling better! My fever was gone from noon on and never came back; the nausea went away; and the D and vomiting and pain went away! I have been able to tolerate Ensure and plain egg noodles. It's so odd how one minute I was really sick, and the next I felt fine.

It almost seems too good to be true, but I think the Pred I started on Monday has finally kicked in for me. My GI has me on a low dosage of Pred, and I was going to call and ask him why that was and to see if he could increase it, but now I don't need to make that call. This morning is like yesterday, just a little nausea, but no pain and no fever, and I had an Ensure for breakfast!

I really hope I am not getting my hopes up too soon, but I can't tell you how thrilled I am that I seem to be on my way to feeling better.

Thanks for the support.

Even though I am feeling much better, how long do you think I should wait before eating regular food? I feel like I rush it sometimes, but I am also interested in testing my stomach to see if I am actually better to know where I stand before my GI appt on Monday.

Slowly add things back into your diet. But I would try to stick with the stuff that is easy to chew, easy to digest.

I would stick to really soft food for another day or so. And keep to small amounts at a time. Better to eat every few hours than put too much in and have a problem. When just getting over being sick I keep to my white food diet. Pasta, potato, noodles, eggs, fish, chicken, pudding, custard, tapioca, bread......

Glad you are feeling better, hope it keeps up, just don't push it too fast.
